10 Nov, 8 Dec (Sat): FREE Chek Jawa boardwalk tour with the Naked Hermit Crabs

It's the school holidays! Time to put aside the textbooks and computers, and get out to explore the interesting nooks and corners of Singapore. Chek Jawa Boardwalk in Pulau Ubin is one lovely gem of a nature place.

Specially organised for the kids and the family, we have 2 FREE walks during the school holidays - 10th Nov and 8th Dec, Saturday.

What about the adults? Yes, yes, we haven't forgotten about you. Lots of you write in to ask about the Chek Jawa walks. We have enough guides and can easily form a few groups for the grown-ups apart from the little ones.

Lots to see at Chek Jawa, especially when accompanied by an experienced guide. There are busy fiddler crabs, slithery snakes, cute mudskippers, placid monitor lizards, fascinating tree-climbing crabs, super spiders. Goodness! What a long list of animals! And if we are really lucky, who knows, we might spot the Oriental Pied Hornbills among the tall trees, woodpeckers, sharmas, sea snakes, mud crabs, herons feeding on the mudflats, or White-Bellied Sea Eagles in the sky. One can never be sure what one can find, but we know it will be a fun outing.

Date: 10th November and 8th December, 2012 (Saturday)
Time: 9:30 am
Duration: about 2 hours
Meeting Place: Chek Jawa Information Kiosk, Pulau Ubin
Cost: The Crabs do not charge for the trip but you will have to pay for the bumboat and taxi rides to get to Chek Jawa.
